My clinical interests include teen pregnancy, parenting, reproductive and contraceptive care. I am also interested in screening and treatment of mental health disorders in teen mothers. I provide pediatric and adolescent medical care for teen mothers and their children.
I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I believe in treating the person as a whole, taking every aspect of a patient's body and health into consideration during diagnosis and treatment.
In my spare time, I enjoy taking care of my family, yoga, gardening, photography and traveling.
I am dedicated to improving the health of teen mothers and their children.
